We all love our pets, don't we? Whether it’s a dog, a cat, a bird or maybe a gold fish, our pets are the most adorable part of our life. But how about keeping a python as a pet? Scary thought right?
Let me tell you the story of a woman who had a python she dearly loved…what happened next might not let you sleep tonight so read ahead at your own risk…
So there was a woman who had a snake as a pet, a python which she loved so much. The snake was around 4 meters long and looked healthy. However, one day it just stopped eating. The lady got desperate, she tried everything she thought the snake would like. Still, the snake refused to eat. Sad and tired, the woman took her loving pet to a vet as the last resort. The vet listened to her story carefully and then asked the woman whether the snake sleeps with her at night, wraps around her, and whether it tends to spread out throughout its length.
The woman beamed with joy and replied, “my pet python just can’t sleep without me. However, since the time the poor thing has stopped eating, it stretches itself all through the night. I think it is in real discomfort please do something!”
What the vet told her shocked her to death. Basically, the python wasn’t sick but it has been preparing itself to eat her instead!
He explained that each time the snake used to creep and wrap around the lady`s body, it was actually checking her size and weighing how great a meal she was and how prepared it has to be prior the attack. Speaking of the reason for its refusal to eat, it was actually making enough space so that it is easier to swallow and digest its next meal (the lady herself).
The moral of this story is that sometimes it is difficult to identify people’s true intentions. Just because someone “close” is hugging and kissing you doesn’t necessarily means that his or her intentions are good.
